Look for a flamboyant plant among the wheatfields.

Horsetail is a cooking ingredient that can only be found in Liyue, most of which live in the shallow waters along the Stone Gate and Dihua Marsh. While there aren't many Dishes and fishing baits that you can make with Horsetail, you may find yourself needing a few of them once in a while.

In that case, here are all the places you can obtain Horsetail in Genshin Impact, as well as how to use the ingredient in various Recipes.

Horsetails only grow among wheat plantations. They're bright pink in color and are easy to spot against the duller surrounding plants. While farming, make sure to stick to the shallow waters and use the wheat to help you locate the Horsetails.

Most Horsetails are located along the water's edge from the Teleport Waypoint north of the Stone Gate, all the way to Dihua Marsh. It's recommended to start your route from the northern Teleport Waypoint and move southward to collect all the Horsetails along the way. Reference the images below for where to find all Horsetails in the game.
